To facilitate off-network usage, the files generally have only local (within the same directory) hypertext links. All links to "external" URL's, including much LaTeX information available on the Web, have been restricted to one file in this set other than the current one.
Note that these files get updated as I learn new things; in particular, they underwent major improvements in July and August 1995. So, you might want to periodically pick up a newer version. Although it is not required, if you make these files available on a public Web server, I would appreciate a note letting me know.
get pub/LaTeX/LaTeX.tar.Z filename.tar.ZAfter downloading this file to
filename.tar.Zon your local machine, issue the Unix commands:
uncompress filename.tar.Z tar -xf filename.tar(Note: some Web software, such as Mosaic, will automatically uncompress the file when retrieving it, in which case save it as
filename.tarand skip the first line above.) This will create a subdirectory named
htmlin your current directory which contains the complete set of HTML files and which requires about 1 MByte of disk space. The "Introduction" file is
index.htmland the Table of Contents page is
You may rename or move the entire
html subdirectory if desired; all
file references are local to this directory so links should continue to work.
